View Full Version : C&C Buying your own supplies to make C&C cage

04-29-13, 09:54 am
I am wondering what is cheaper...Buying your own grids and coroplast to make a cage OR buying a set from this site to make one. I know it would be easier to just buy from here but it seems expensive? I don't know.

It depends where you are, so where supplies would be getting shipped from. If you live in the US you can get grids from Walmart, Kmart and Sears (not Target), and coro from sign shops. You'll have to look around and compare prices.

I bought my own supplies. It was 40 dollars for the grids (I needed 2 boxes), and 16 dollars for the coroplast (which I hear is a little high. The full sheet was 32 dollars but I split it with a friend). I made a 3x3, so it did end up being cheaper for me than if I had bought a comparably sized cage at the store.

I bought my own grinds but ordered the coro base and ramp from the store, I wanted the black. I also ordered the patio and a loft. The fact that the edges were straight and a perfect fit was worth it to me.

Many members here have bought coroplast from this place for $10 for a 4x8 ft sheet.
The location near me charges $20.

You can get a box of grids from Sears. This seems to be the cheapest one I've found. Other stores have less grids per box.

Edit to add:
If the cage you're planning to build is not bigger than 2x4.5 grids. This sheet is big enough.
